Gary Ash,

It looks as if there is finally a Studebaker you can outrun at the drags. :D;)

Thanks for that! Being a Diesel fan myself, I've always toyed with the idea of building a Stude diesel car of some sort. I have a 73 Mercedes Diesel 5 spd in a rusted out body that's waiting for the right car...

There is one that I am aware of that resides less than 20 miles from Paul Johnson (53k). I think that I first saw the car around 1974/75 at a local show in Harrisonburg, Va. Here are a couple of pictures.

Very possible, as Massey bought Perkins in January of 1959.
